Ceramics in America 2021


The 2021 volume of Ceramics in America features wide ranging essays and new discoveries on ceramics used and collected in the American context. Of special note is the reporting of seventeenth-century Chinese porcelain discovered in the ca. 1607 contest of Jamestown, Virginia. Another essay documents the archaeologically-recovered Chinese export porcelain of James and Dolley Madison from their home Montpelier in Virginia. Other articles explore ceramics made to commemorate historical and political events both in America and Great Britain. The subject of nineteenth-century American stonewares made in Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, and Virginia is covered in four important articles. A special collector’s biopic surveys a highly important American collection of eighteenth-century armorial Chinese porcelain. Other articles will include a profile of North Carolina potter David Stuempfle who continues the old-age tradition of producing wood fired stoneware and a summary of an archaeologically recovered assemblage of early nineteenth-century slip decorated earthenwares attributed to Enoch Wood and James Caldwell of Burslem, Staffordshire.
